After hitting some of the lowest attendance records since 2010, the Bucs have opted to reduce ticket prices. Starting with season pass holders. Last year the Bucs averaged an announced attendance of 54,356 people per game. The actual attendance average reported by the Tampa Sports Authority was 47,708. Which was down 8% versus last year.
In a move to retain season ticket holders and encourage single game day tickets, they are slashing prices. The cheapest seats at Raymond James Stadium will be $30 before taxes and fees. In season pass renewal packets sent out, it showed price reductions all the way up to 32%, and even 17% reduction for the premium club seats. The average Bucs game day ticket will be about $76 which ranks 24th in the league versus last years league figures.
COO Brian Ford release a statement regarding this years ticket prices saying,
“We recognize and appreciate the passion and loyalty of our season pass members who have supported the Buccaneers throughout the years.
“For the second year in a row, there will be no price increase for our season pass members ensuring that we remain one of the most affordably priced tickets in the NFL. We look forward continuing to provide the best in class customer service and overall game experience that our season pass members have come to expect.’’
The hiring of Bruce Arians and the return of key players like Winston are sure to help fill the stadium, but only one thing cures attendance issues… Winning. Isn’t it funny how that works?
